ABSTRACT
Overview of papers on enhancement of European Higher Education as presented during the Online, Open and Flexible Higher Education Conference in Rome, October 2016

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are often perceived as a low-cost and efficient means for a teacher to reach a large audience of students, but if they are poorly made they will not be effective. A poorly made MOOC could have damaging effects on the teacher and the institution that they work for. Proversity teamed up with a professional screenwriter, summarising key areas of dramatic theory, to develop a robust template for the structure of MOOCs. It is hoped that in the near future, Proversity will be able to use The Learner’s Journey to create more effective MOOCs that allow learning through gameplay, immersing the student in the subject.
